Young men know that their four years on the baseball diamond at Westish College are all that remain of their sporting careers. Only their gifted fielder, Henry, seems to have the chance to keep his dream -- and theirs, vicariously -- alive, until a routine throw goes disastrously off course, and the fates of five people are upended. An expansive, warm-hearted novel about ambition and its limits, and about commitment -- to oneself and to others.
